Read carefully, here's the difference between Get Home Bags, Bugout Bags, and other emergency loadouts.
Reference the legend below for acronym explanations.
✏OTH - any location Other Than Home.
✏BOL - BugOut Location.
✏RP - Rally Point.
✏BOV - BugOut Vehicle.
🎒Get Home Bag [GHB] - gets you from OTH to home, (1-2DAY). Recommended Types Slingbag, School Backpack, Large Purse, Drawstring.
🎒Bugout Bag [BOB] - gets you from home/OTH to a RP/BOL, (3 DAY). Recommended Types Medium Size Backpack, Multi Compartment.
🎒INCH Loadout - gets you from home to a RP/BOL, (1-2 WEEKS). Recommended Types Framed Hiking Pack or Ruck Sack.

🛠EDC - Every Day Carry is composed of useful tools and supplies to accomplish daily tasks. While some items can aid in a survival scenario the purpose of the kit varies. These items are carried on one’s person or kept nearby such as in a small pouch. EDC is also what you wear; this is EDW or Every Day Wear. A Personal Survival Kit (PSK) should be in your EDC.
📲Download our Emergency Loadout Guide and learn the differences between EDC, GHB, BOB, INCH, & BOV. Includes full checklists for each.
Clearly, you could literally have 5 bags prepared and stored in various locations. One at work, in the car, etc but instead use a modular system that incorporates supplies from various Loadouts. For most of us, it's not financially feasible to have multiple fully loaded packs. Make your bags work together. #EDC compliments a GHB which then has a companion bag at home, where if needed, you can simply dump the contents of the #GHB into a prepped larger bag that then becomes a BOB. Your #INCH is a combination of your #BOB and #BOV .
